You won't believe what we've done!
Smash Hits Magazine - October 2005
You must have plenty of embarrassing moments. Right?
Dick: That’s right! Ever since we’ve
been little, we’ve had shameful episodes. You won’t
believe what we’ve done!
Dom: Oh my god, yes! My parents were called into
school once when I was five because I’d been caught looking
up a girl’s skirt.
Dick: I think Dom was embarrassed when his mum
came on our show wearing a Santa outfit and started kissing me.
Do the staff on Da Bungalow often spring surprises like
that on you?
Dom: Oh yeah, all the time. The producers surprised
us once by doing a This is Your Life on us, bringing out old teachers
and school friends. Each one got covered in gunge. That scene ended
up winning an award!
Any other cringey TV disasters?
Dom: I once got through to the grand final of Young
Magician of the Year. I started doing a trick with doves, but one
of them flew away, hit a light and fell onto the floor. The music
stopped, so I legged it backstage, thinking I’d lost, in the
end it turned out that I’d won! It still made me cringe, though.
You know what they say. Never work with children or……
Dick: Animals, definitely. A spider monkey at a
safari park once popped on me. They tell you that you can’t
touch them, but they can jump on you! One jumped on my head and
did a little poo on my shoulder.
Ugh! Moving on have you ever done anything silly while smooching
Dick: My friends once caught me snogging a French
exchange student in the woods. I wouldn’t have minded, but
it was my first-ever kiss!
Dom: My most cringey girl moment came when I was
taking my exams and I wrote “I Love Rowan” on the desk.
She then ended up sitting at that table for the next exam!
Oh dear. Are bogies ever a source of embarrassment?
Dick: I sneezed on a bus once and I didn’t
have a tissue. There was snot everywhere!
Dom: I once took a girl on a first date and we
had Mexican food. I ate fajitas and made so much mess – we
didn’t have a second date….
Ever had any holiday howlers?
Dick: I once jumped into a swimming pool and my
shorts fell down!
Dom: I slipped on a banana skin while carrying
a tray of drinks. I wouldn’t have minded, but it was in front
of some girls I was trying to impress.
Lastly, what would Constable Christian lock you up for?
Dick: I wore lime green shirts when they were really
fashionable, and used to tuck my jumpers into my jeans.
Dom: I used to wear waistcoats all the time.
Dick: Basically, we used to be really unfashionable….and
we still are!
